East Northamptonshire Council is able of offer advice and guidance to organisations holding indoor or outdoor public events. These range from sporting events to musical concerts including firework displays some large and some quite small such as local village fetes.
These events can often involve large numbers of people coming together in relatively small spaces. They can sometimes include potentially hazardous activities and temporary structures.
Event organisers must consider all the hazards effectively and liaise with the relevant authorities to ensure that suitable controls are put in place.
East Northamptonshire Council Health Protection team can work with event organisers to assist them in planning their event offering suitable guidance and support wherever necessary. They will also feedback information from the event organisers themselves to the relevant authorities in order that action can be taken where necessary.
There is a useful Event Organisers Handbook on our website for you to view which can assist you.
If you are planning an event that will be open to the public, be it large or small, regular or one off or even just thinking about planning an event please contact us.
